- This version has been provided by an anonymous source.
- A substantial amount of this show has never circulated in soundboard quality before and it's not hard to figure out why, parts of the Master Reels are not in very good shape at all. However, after major surgery, including a transplant, our patient is doing fairly well. The new Sugaree is functioning perfectly. Our benefactor is not in favour of audience patches so the patient is missing some vital parts as there are no suitable donors.

- Some sections have been made mono as the damage in one channel was too severe to be repaired.
- The mix gets a little different in places. e.g. 'Me and My Uncle' has Weir's guitar up much higher than anything else for a lot of the track.

Soundboard Plagued With Problems
Jeepers, with numerous dropouts, volume anomalies, and audience splices all over the place, this soundboard is a mess! Since I love ‘73 so much, it took me all of a Sunday to weed out and dump the chopped up AUD-spliced songs that weren’t salvageable and repair the ones I thought were worth keeping. Thankfully, PITB was salvageable taking out the AUD splice and fading the SBD portions out and in and blending each three second fade. Phew. I appreciate the effort of trying to complete the missing portions of what was there. But the board and the AUD are so totally different, the semi-repaired songs just aren’t worth listening to.
I was able to keep 1:16:36 of the first set, but the second was butchered. I started the second set file with Truckin’ and chopped out the AUD splice in Eyes to fade a quieter portion of the Eyes board at 13:27, then faded and mixed in what was left of the song. It actually works well. But you have to be very discriminating about where you fade out and fade back in to have it blend cleanly in music editing. I also decided to move Stella back to a fade in from Eyes since I’m not a China Doll fan. The blend had a very slight awkwardness to it since the songs are in a different key. But if you’re not paying too close attention, it works really well. Since the AUD is so bad, I also had to dump the last three songs to finish up with 46:49 of the second set.
With a moderate amount of reverb to soften the hot vocals, what’s left of the show is average good. But in saying that, Truckin’ > Other One > Eyes > Stella is the highlight of the show though Eyes still has a couple of little technical issues.
BTW, I hear thereabouts that this is a BBD? Doesn't sound like it. And it's always enjoyable listening to Uncle Bobo introduce the band. ;^ )

The Great Beyond
Pigpen went to the great beyond, but the band must carry on.... Indeed, this night's performance is slightly hampered by slightly subpar sound quality, but it shouldn't deter one from enjoying the show.
I've always felt this night was something of a warm up for the beast that the following night is. While the night of the 16th is among my top ten favorites of 1973, this night is still worthy. The highlight for me is the cathartic Playin' in the Band.

It is truly an honor, privilege & pleasure to be the 1st to pop 'Jerry' on this particular version. I looked at & sampled the other 2 loaded up here. I, just as I'm sure you would, find this to be a vastly different mix or some kind genius editing and remastering. Thank you SIRMick for doing whatever it is to allow my ears & nerves to fully grok this tight-knit band of musicians; at a time when the boys were fully aware, probably feeling a bit on the down side, trying to make the best of a grim and morbid situation. The Dead are faced with Death itself on this night. The first show, PPP: Post PigPen. I wasn't there that night (the most memorable/significant show I've been to was at Nassau Coliseum: that would be 16 years later a different life time) wish I was but this is the next best thing.
This show is worthy of some of the all stars of archive commenting and reviewing. I'm thinking of some of the heavyweights in Archive Dead Lore by Fans of all things GD! Such luminaries as: Dr. Flashback, clementinescaboose, oh...ah...um..., Evan S. Hunt and many others that escape my memory. Folks, make no mistake about it, when any of the aforementioned puts their two, three, four or more cents in you can consider that a seal of appraisal worthy of us all. I'm hoping one if not all of them reconsider this recent update and put their seal of approval to this version. This was a night for the band when apparently they all gathered in a circle around their rugs, center stage. GD was playing to G-D in a cosmic send off to their fallen brother (the first of several keyboardists to meet their maker before their time was through). The end of a massive wave of energetic, intense, exploratory, transitional shows ranging from the Fall of 1970-Winter of 1973, what with Europe 72 into the rest of that massive year. Sure they were reduced down to Billy on drums but they gained Keith who adds layers of depth to every song he wraps his mind around. Of course just like everything in life everything comes with a price, the price of Keith is the Donna wail. However, on nights when she's dialed in to the wavelength & frequency of the others she tends to tone her modulation of voice down enough where she actually adds to the color of the sounds. I'll leave the reviewing to more worthy reviewers upon grokking this updated version. Not the best show, not the worst show but significant because of the profundity of the situation, the reality of their present. Their brother, their comrade, their backbone, their chutzpah, their kickin ass takin no prisoners bad ass frontman himself has but 8 days prior to this performance succumbed to the trauma he put his body through. There is a significance to this one but (and I'm sure the surviving members probably barely remember this one as it was perhaps too much for them at the time, I might be mistaken on that one) I'm not trying to say this is the greatest musically or recording-wise but it's a vast improvement. It's checking out worthy for all of you. Peace, Love & Grandma!
